Wildcats playing more physical

LEXINGTON Ky. (WYMT) - The Kentucky Wildcats and John Calipari have been going through what Coach Cal likes to call "Camp Cal".

This past Saturday, the Cats played a physical Marshall team and walked away 28 point winners. Calipari says he is finally seeing the results from all the hard work his team has been putting in during practice.

"What Marshall did for us physically, they had confidence, they have a swagger. We couldn't make shots and they're looking at it like, We're in this, and they were", said Calipari. "They come out at half, do what they did to us, exactly what we needed. We needed to go against a big, physical team to see if we got tougher in the last two weeks. Last game, it did not carry over, all the work. This game it did. So that's why I'm happy."

The Wildcats will be back in action as they hit the road this Saturday for a match-up with in state rival and fourth ranked Louisville. Tip off of the game is set for 4pm, with coverage of the game on WYMT.

The Wildcats will look to improve to 9-3 on the season.
